I am looking for information on my great grandfather, Fred WILKINSON. He died quite young, so I don't know a whole lot. Here is what I do know:
-He married Clara Louise (aka "Louise") TEFFT, who was from Tennessee. They probably married in the mid/late 1930's.
-He lived in Los Angeles during the 1930's.
-He supposedly played in the LA Philharmonic Orchestra in the 1930's.
-Fred and Louise had 1 daughter in the late 30's, Diane Louise. Diane was born in Los Angeles.
-Fred became sick with some kind of genetic, terminal, debilitating disease soon after Diane was born. He apparently was in a lot of pain and had to use Morphine. He died not long after that, probably in the early 1940's, supposedly of a Morphine overdose.
- He had dark, wavy hair (my parents saw a picture of him, but I haven't)
